In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, APHC leaders Syed Bashir Andrabi and Khawaja Firdous have said that India is pursuing Israeli pat-tern in Palestine to turn the Muslim majority Jammu and Kashmir into a minority.
Syed Bashir Andrabi and Khawaja Firdous in their statements issued in Srinagar said that India was settling non-Kashmiri Hindus and selling local land to Indian traders to effect the demographic change in the occupied territory.
They said that Jammu and Kashmir is an inter-nationally-recognized disputed territory and in the presence of international law, it was illegal for the Indian government to allow any non-Kashmiri to buy and sell land in Jammu and Kashmir.
The Hurriyat leaders said that India was using clever tactics to suppress the Kashmiris’ freedom movement. They said that New Delhi was interested in the land and not in the welfare of the Kashmiri people. Indian troops have martyred many Kashmiri youth in fake encounters.
Bashir Andrabi and Khawaja Firdous said that evil intentions of the RSS-backed Modi government to turn the Muslim majority territory into a minority are not hiding from anyone. They deplored that BJP-RSS terrorists backed by Narendra Modi were openly threatening Muslims and other minorities in India and IIOJK.
The leaders appealed to the international com-munity to play its role in preventing Indian atroci-ties in occupied Kashmir and resolving the Kashmir dispute in accordance with the UN resolutions.
APHC AJK leaders Syed Yousuf Naseem, Mir Tahir Masood, Hassan al Bana and Syed Aijaz Reh-mani in a joint statement in Islamabad expressed serious concern over the killing of innocent Kash-miri youth in fake encounters in IIOJK. They said that India since 1947 has been using brutal and mili-tary might acts against people of Kashmir to break their will and stand on resolution of the Kashmir dispute but has failed in its nefarious designs. They paid rich tributes to the martyrs of Kashmir.—KMS
